Example search queries:

  • Must contain any instance of "electric" AND "toothbrush" (or "tooth" AND "brush") where the status is granted. Example:
    electric AND (toothbrush OR (tooth AND brush)) status:granted
  • Must contain any instance of "robot" (e.g. robot, robots, robotic, robotics) AND "vacuum" OR "hoover" where the status is alive (pending or granted) in 2018 and excludes patent families ONLY in China. NOTE: Cipher will search and include expired patents by default. Include the following as part of your search query if these aren’t required: AND alive_at:2018. Example:
    robot* AND (vacuum OR hoover) alive_at:2018 NOT only_in_territory:CN

The following operators connect your search strings. Use these operators in your keyword search to narrow or broaden your search query.
